|Lee & Ramirez Homer as Cubs Pound Brewers
|MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Derrek Lee and Aramis Ramirez hit consecutive homers and Tom Gorzelanny tied a career high with nine strikeouts, lifting the Chicago Cubs to a 10-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers Monday night.
Lee drove in four runs and Ramirez scored twice and drove in two more for the Cubs, who won for the second time since general manager Jim Hendry suspended volatile outfielder Milton Bradley for the season on Sunday.
Bradley's replacement on the roster, Tyler Colvin, made his first career start, driving in a run with a sacrifice fly his first time up as the Cubs built a 7-0 lead in the second.
